"Ruth Fielding was an orphan and came to live with her miserly uncle. Her adventures and travels will hold the interest of every reader."
   --Cupples and Leon Advertisement


"Ruth was not afraid, for by nature she was a brave girl, and all her life she had been called upon to face trying situations.

Her early life had been anything but easy. As an orphan she had made her home with her great-uncle, Jabez Potter, the miserly owner of the Red Mill which was located near Cheslow in one of the New England states. There she had come to love Aunt Alvirah Boggs, her uncle's faithful housekeeper, and had grown up with Tom and Helen Cameron.

In time, Ruth found that she loved Tom Cameron too, and was induced to accept his ring. But Ruth's heart was also set on a writing career. In college she won fame as a scenario writer, and later Mr. Hammond had aided her in organizing her own film company. With Tom as the treasurer, the company had prospered beyond Ruth's wildest dream.

As a moving picture director, adventure carried Ruth and her friends to many strange lands, but always the plucky girl had been able to hold her own against unprincipled persons whp sought to give her trouble. In fact, from the time the reader was first introduced to her in the initial volume of the series, 'Ruth Fielding of the Red Mill,' she had proved her ability to think fast and clearly.

Ruth gained international honors by winning a prize scenario contest, and likewise enough money to make her independent. . ."
